No Comments 28 April 2012

This recipe is a classic Mother’s Day recipe straight from bread heaven. There will not be a morsel left. Its great for company because it needs to be done the day before to chill in the fridge.

Serves 6-8 people, Dairy


  • Challah bread cut into 1 inch thick slices, trimming crust
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Powdered Sugar for garnish
  • Large Pyrex or oven to table baking dish


In a small saucepan melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring, until smooth, and pour into a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish.

Arrange bread slices in one layer in baking dish, squeezing them slightly to fit.

In a bowl whisk together eggs, heavy cream, milk, vanilla,  and salt until combined well and pour evenly over bread. Tightly cover the dish and chill bread mixture in refrigerator  at least 8 hours and up to 1 day.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees  and bring bread mixture to room temperature. Bake uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are  golden, 30 to 40 minutes.

Delicious Cinnamon Raisin French Toast

No Comments 17 April 2010

Earth Day got me thinking about my every day cooking and my impact upon our earth. Each day I prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for a growing family- and within a day or two I am almost always throwing out leftovers, fruits that I bought too much of, vegetables that I decided not to make…. How is all this waste impacting the environment? Here a few facts just to give you an idea of the food being wasted in America:

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), just over a quarter of the country’s food — about 25.9 million tons — gets thrown in the garbage can every year. It then costs the government 1 Billion dollars to dispose of all of this waste.

So tomorrow morning instead of throwing out my challah from Saturday Shabbat lunch, I will be making baked challah french toast!


1 loaf cinnamon raisin challah bread (Plain challah bread works great with this recipe as well)

3 eggs

2 cups whole milk (Sometimes I do one cup skim and one cup whole)

3 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Slice Challah bread in 2 inch thick slices  and place in pyrex that has been sprayed with pam.

Combine eggs, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl and pour over bread.  Let the bread soak up the mixture. Flip slices of bread and let it continue to soak up the mixture- this should only take a few minutes.

Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture over the bread.

Bake 20-25 minutes
